Watson-Marlow Pumps Group, the leader in peristaltic pump technology, introduces DriveSure™, its new panel-mount OEM brushless DC gear motor, with a fully integrated speed controller. DriveSure is highly adaptable, offering 24V and 48V dc options, a 51:1 control ratio between 408-8 rpm, and directly accepts market-standard analogue control signals. With DriveSure, OEM engineers can bring products to market faster and with less engineering cost by eliminating the time, design uncertainty and risks associated with the separate specification of pump motor, gearbox and drive.
Driving down complexity
Building on Watson-Marlow’s extensive experience of providing peristaltic cased pumps, DriveSure for the first time brings a range of panel-mount brushless DC motor gearboxes and controllers as a package. This innovative range offers market leading speed control range and precision, guaranteed torque and long service life, ideal for OEMs wishing to panel-mount Watson-Marlow’s proven pumpheads, including the 102R, 114, 313D, 501RL and 520R series for a flow range from 0.1 to 6100 ml/min. It also interfaces with the market-standard analogue control signals.
DriveSure helps OEMs to reduce their time-to-market significantly, so providing valuable competitive gain. Furthermore, the inherent risks of buying various system components from different manufacturers are eliminated, with the safety net of a single, comprehensive two year warranty. Importantly, this includes a performance guarantee for the complete pump and full integration support.
CE marked and manufactured in conformance with IEC and EN 61010-1, the compact, lightweight and well-balanced design provides a ‘plug-in and forget’ solution. The use of Watson-Marlow’s own gearbox provides the customer with excellent torque and silent running. As a result, the solution is ideal for the life science and Biopharm sectors where noise can be a major issue.
Typical life science applications might include dental, endoscopy, electro-medical and in-vitro diagnostics. The comprehensive control and flow rate capability also meets the requirements of biopharmaceutical equipment, such as bioreactors, bench-top cross-flow filtration and chromatography equipment, while in terms of analysers, process, toxicity and wet chemical analysis equipment is sure to benefit.
DriveSure technology enables the most competitively priced panel mount OEM pump range that Watson-Marlow has offered to date, giving customers the peace of mind of a fully integrated pump solution from the marker leader. This assurance of pump performance is back up by a comprehensive two year warranty, and direct support in more than 50 countries.
